Central University of Kerala (CUK), Kasaragod was established in 2009. The University is founded on the noble vision of a ‘caring wisdom’ and is guided by the lofty ideals of academic and social commitment, moral steadfastness and intellectual and spiritual enlightenment, as reflected in its vision statement. Located in a region characterized by linguistic and ethnic diversity and cultural richness, the University seeks to harness the local resources – human, intellectual, social, artistic and cultural – while bringing in the best that is globally available, thus maintaining a fruitful, symbiotic relationship with a region that badly needs an educational uplift.
The University opened its academic portals in October 2009 with 17 students enrolling in two PG programmes and operated from a rented building at Nayanmarmoola (Vidyanagar). From this humble beginning, CU Kerala has grown into an institution offering seventeen postgraduate and research programmes with a total enrolment of 700 odd students, in the academic year of 2014-15.
The seventeen departments, viz., Animal Science, Bio-Chemistry and Molecular Biology, Genomic Science, Plant Science, Environmental Science, Economics, Education,International Relations & Politics, Social Work, English & Comparative Literature, Hindi, Linguistics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Education and Law, function under nine Schools, viz., School of Biological Sciences, School of Earth Science Systems, School of Economics, School of Education, School of Global Studies, School of Languages & Comparative Literature, School of Legal Studies, School Physical Sciences and School of Social Sciences.
